We all have different types of Instagram accounts we prefer over others. Some enjoy accounts that follow a specific person’s travel adventures. I’m talking about the ones that tend to have pictures of the person all over the page. Although I sometimes enjoy these pages, I typically prefer accounts that revolve around the travel destinations and have informative captions. There have been so many times I’ve seen a picture of a place that looks really cool, but never end up knowing where it was taken because the person didn’t say so in the caption.
That being said, I’ve narrowed down my favorite travel Instagram accounts. These pages have gorgeous photos and teach me a thing or two about what’s in the picture. In no particular order, here are 10 Instagram accounts I highly recommend taking a look at:
1.The World Up Closer | @theworldupcloser
Shea Powell is a travel blogger from Jamaica who thought she couldn’t make traveling a big part of her life. Thanks to her dedication and curiosity about the world, Shea now travels all over the world. Her pictures are so stunning, you’ll want it to be you doing all that traveling.
2. National Geographic Travel | @natgeotravel
Nat Geo’s travel account is one of my absolute favorite pages on Instagram. The pictures are, of course, taken by professionals. What I love the most about this page and National Geographic in general, are the captions. I learn something new in every single one of their posts and it’s typically something you don’t learn about anywhere else.
3. The Blonde Abroad | @theblondeabroad
Probably one of the better-known travel bloggers, Kiersten of The Blonde Abroad turned her dreams of seeing the world into an amazing job. She ditched her job in corporate finance and now writes about the 50+ countries she’s been to.
4. Intravelist | @intravelist
Intravelist is an innovative space where travelers from around the world share their pictures. You can tag #intravelist for a chance to be featured. The great part about Intravelist is that they share well-rounded posts. The pictures are amazing and they tend to have great captions too. Make sure to click on the original photographers page too! I’ve never been disappointed in doing so, as I’ve come across some other great accounts through there.
5. Earth Focus | @earthfocus
If you like seeing the best travel and nature pictures on Instagram, this is the page you need to check out. Earth Focus is similar to Intravelist, in that it shares pictures so amazing, you might even start to question whether some of the places are real.
6. Rodrigo Trevino | @rodtrvn
Visiting Portland, Oregon is at the top of my bucket list thanks to this guy. Rodrigo Trevino is a crazy talented photographer whose pictures make me want to take the longest road trip ever and camp at every camping site in the U.S.
7. Flo Travels The World | @flo_travels_the_world
Florian Wopfner is the ultimate adventurer. She hikes, climbs mountains, bikes, and skies all over the world… and she takes her own pictures.
8. Travel Tom Tom | @traveltomtom
Tom is currently on his 4th world trip and has been to 76 countries. Seeing as he’s seen most of the world, he has some incredible pictures and stories to share. Thanks to his huge following on Instagram, he gets cool opportunities and is invited to some spectacular places.
9. Conde Nast Traveler | @cntraveler
Most of us know and love Conde Nast Traveler. Their website is a great resource for travelers. Their Instagram, on the other hand, is the perfect place to find other talented photographer’s and travel blogger’s Instagram accounts.
10. Dame Traveler | @dametraveler
Dame Traveler sets out to empower women to “travel more, do more, and be more.” The account features pictures from female world travelers and is a great place for women to connect.
